Hornchurch man arrested after stolen vehicles found in Wickford

A man has been arrested and two stolen vehicles recovered in Wickford.

At around 4.30pm on Wednesday August 30, officers were alerted to a BMW M3 which had been stolen in London but was now in Essex.

The vehicle was traced to a location in Wickford.

When police arrived, they found the car and a Ford Fiesta which we identified had been taken from an address in Epping the previous day.

Officers also identified other vehicle parts which they suspected had been taken from stolen cars.

A 27 year-old man from Hornchurch was arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods.

He has subsequently been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
